At Double Impact, we believe in the importance of strong, mutually beneficial relationships between our service users and the community.

Drug and alcohol addiction can happen to anyone, but the support of the community can make a huge difference to the success of recovery services and reintegration. In return, every step away from dependency offers an enormous opportunity for individuals to have a positive impact on their community.

We run several specialist employment programmes and work in close partnership with local businesses to provide bespoke training and employment opportunities to individuals established in recovery.

Here, Jess Barnett from Nottingham-based business, The Treat Kitchen, discusses our partnership to provide a work placement scheme, a programme which has been of great benefit to both partners and which won an award in the East Midlands Charity Awards 2020.  Click here to find out more about our partnership work with TTK.



The work, volunteering and mentoring opportunities provided by forward-thinking, socially responsible employers are a vital support for our highly motivated individuals rebuilding their lives to escape the cycle of addiction.

Equally, the courage and determination that drive these individuals to turn around their lives are qualities that would benefit any organisation – particularly when matched to the right role and supported by our pre-employment and training services.
